Milton Plesur Scholarship

Milton Plesur

Full-time history majors who have compiled outstanding records in history are eligible to apply for a Plesur Scholarship, named after Professor Milton Plesur (1927-87), who devoted his career to teaching UB students and bequeathed his estate to the university. Awards will be made to students who can demonstrate the most serious interest in and commitment to history as evidenced by academic record, extra-curricular activities, and career plans.  A sophomore awardee who continues to compile an excellent record in his or her junior year may reapply for a second year of support for the senior year.
